Joshua Greer Eager To Unleash Power and ‘Sweetness’ in First ESPN Co-Feature


Chicago’s Joshua Greer Jr. slowly works his way back towards his beloved Windy City, looking to impress in Hinckley, MN Friday night on first ESPN co-feature

WBA Middleweight champion Rob “Bravo” Brant returns to his home state Minnesota Friday, for his first title defense against undefeated Khasan Baysangurov set for the Grand Casino in Hinckley. After the fight was announced Brant said, “It’s extra special that my first title defense will be in my home state of Minnesota in front of my fans.”

Mission accomplished for Brant.

But the moment also provides the template for Joshua “Don’t Blink” Greer, Jr., a hard-hitting Chicago native whose singular goal is maintain the momentum he gained by becoming the WBC Continental Americas Bantamweight champion via a TKO7 victory against Daniel Lozano in Corpus Christi, TX back in mid-December. During a recent interview on the Bite Down Boxing podcast, Greer (19-1-1, 11 KOs) revealed his own world champion timetable, “After I get this win, I know this year, whenever Top Rank can do it I want that WBC world title. So I want Nordine Oubaali.”
